What does an Occupational Therapist do?
An Occupational Therapist's (OT) role is to support an individual by offering practical advice which will help them to carry out their daily activities. Often, an OT will centre around making changes to an individual's environment to suit them.
OT's will assist individual's in many different ways, from helping children with disabilities in school, making recommendations to adaptations in the home, to providing a variety of activities/hobbies for people with disabilities to participate in, OT's will work with people of all different ages.
